Volunteer with the Tree Tenders

A group of trained volunteers who coordinate the delivery, planting, and maintenance of street trees throughout our neighborhood. Our organizers host two annual plantings - one in Spring and one in Fall. Signing up for Street Trees is free through the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society. In 2022, our Tree Tenders planted over 100 trees!


Glitter Street Cleaning PILOT


Clean & Green volunteers have been working with Glitter, a Philly street cleaning start-up company, to pilot street cleaning on corridors throughout the neighborhood. 

Corridors of interest include Black Doctor's Row (Christian St.) and 16th Street.

The pilot is projected to run during in Q4 of 2022.  

To help SOSNA make this a sustainable program, we encourage you to make a small donation today and help this become a long lasting reality for Grad Hospital!
